    Default Video of My Little Guy's Jog

    Hello western people.

    Just wanted to share a short video of my pony practicing our western jog, comments appreciated! I know we have to slow it down a bit, but our goal is (VERY) local pleasure and/or horsemanship, plus I plan on continuing to jump and do dressage with him as well, so I don't want to lose that rhythm! Just so proud of my little dude being able to do just about everything I ask him to!

    Personally, I wouldn't change a thing, including his speed. It has a nice quality to it in the video; I think if you tried to slow him up any, you'd wreck that. Obviously if you can get him conditioned to going slow but correct, more power to you!

    I LOVE that his eye is in line with your knee and that for the most part his poll is just a tad higher than his wither. He looks like he's going somewhere with intent instead of trying to find a spot to dig a hole and die (which is the impression I get in most stock breed WP shows).

    I think you got an awesome pony there!

    Best part is that he is tracking up!! Yes!
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Thank you thank you! I will hopefully have some lope video soon as well to share, THAT needs more work for sure! And if anyone knows of someone with a 16" reining or equitation saddle for sale in eastern PA, please PM me As you can tell from the bareback video, I don't have all the necessary equipment yet!

    He moves exactly like my cutting bred QH, same headset, same speed, same rhythm...and we cleaned house in the local walk/jog classes in Western Pleasure.

    Depending on the judge, you don't need a peanut roller to be in the ribbons!
